"Rumor has it that John Carver was a lowly Navy cook before jumping ship and living the pirate life. Carver himself started that rumor. Truth is, until recently he was an assassin for the East India Trading Company's elite Black Guard brigade.

Before Carver will join Jack's crew, you have to help him eliminate the paper trail that could lead to his unpleasant demise…"
